Welcome to the part of this site about the original World Championship Rugby. This game came out in April 2004, for PC, PS2 and Xbox, the first rugby union game for Xbox.

It only carried the licenses of England and Wales, and with only around 20 international teams plus a few bonus teams, was a step back in terms of quantity. The game was made by the makers of Jonah Lomu Rugby, and the game play was expected to be as good as it, and to some extent it was. However it did lack in replay ability, as management options were minimal. It was always claimed to be an arcade game, and is very fun for multiplayer.

This series has a lot of promise, with the developers in close contact with gamers.
